School District Still Undecided On Choice of Insurance Advisor

The Mercedes Independent School District can’t decide what to do…………….

Six consulting firms offered proposals:

  • Barrett Insurance
  • Financial Benefit Service
  • First Financial
  • Marsh Mclellan
  • Ortegon Insurance
  • Valley Risk Consulting

A motion to award to First Financial failed to get a second at their February 23 board meeting. So what’s next?

A special called meeting March 7 may end all speculation.

Watch all six consulting firms make their pitch to the board of trustees here: MISD Regular Board Meeting 2-21-23.mp4 – Google Drive. Start at 43:10. It continues here: MISD Regular Board Meeting 2-21-23 Part 2.mp4 – Google Drive

Roger Garza, owner of Valley Risk Consulting, made the most compelling presentation in our opinion. Valley Risk Consulting is a locally based, well established fee based consultancy.
